A checking account feature in which you can tie your savings account or a line of credit to your checking which allows you to write checks for more than the actual account balance. Instead of getting charged about $27 for bouncing a check, overdraft service will in effect provide the account holder with an instant loan.
- Easy and FREE to setup - Only pay for Overdraft Service if you use it. No charge to sign-up.
- Save Money - Help to avoid paying fees for overdrawing your checking account. Helps avoid fees from creditors such as returned check fees, or late fees.
- Peace of Mind - Mistakes can happen, but with Overdraft Service, you can help ensure your checking account is covered.
How it Works:
- If you write a check, authorize a payment or take a cash withdrawal when there are not enough funds in your checking account, funds will be transferred from your Overdraft Service account to your checking account to cover the amount.
- Funds will only be transferred once per business day.
- One Overdraft Service account can be linked to several checking accounts for coverage.
How does CDARS® work?
Banks that offer CDARS® are members of a special network. When you place a large deposit with Bank of Commerce we use the CDARS® service to place your funds into CDs issued by other members of the network. This occurs in increments of less than $250,000 to ensure that both principal and interest are eligible for full FDIC protection. Other network members do the same thing with their customers’ funds. With help from a sophisticated matching system, banks exchange funds with other members of the network. These exchanges, which occur on a dollar-to-dollar basis, bring the full amount of your original deposit back to the bank.
As a result, Bank of Commerce can make the full amount of the deposit available for community lending purposes (the money stays local!).
